Miller will represent Joshua's sixth unbeaten opponent since 2015.

There is already speculation that Katie Taylor could feature on the undercard if she adds the WBO title to her WBA and IBF belts against Rose Volante of Brazil in Philadelphia on St Patrick's weekend.

That makes the fighters a combined 45-0-1 with 41 knockouts.

"June 1 I am heading to The Big Apple and I plan to embrace the culture and leave with an appetite for more". It has been an honor and a blessing to fight at some of the best venues in the world at home, in the United Kingdom, not least Wembley Stadium.

"I am looking forward to taking on another challenge with a good boxer and a brilliant talker".

"AJ is making a huge mistake coming over here to fight me in my own backyard", said Miller.

Miller is an offensive tackle-sized heavyweight who has surprising athleticism for a man his size.
